Humanities and Arts FLEXI

The FLEXI preparatory programme for studies in humanities, arts and architecture for students with a high degree of Czech proficiency is held at the Prague (Krystal) Centre. The advantage of this campus in Prague 6 is the opportunity to study, eat and stay in one place. Near the study centre there is an extensive natural park and a large sports/recreation facility of Charles University. The trip to the city centre takes 10 minutes by metro.

The FLEXI programme includes intensive Czech language tuition and the compulsory study of specialized subjects which are paid separately by the student. Students choose specialized subjects based on their interest and future field of study from the current offer of the study centre and create their own individual plan by combining Czech lessons and specialized subjects. Students are required to take a minimum of two subjects in each semester. This type of programme is limited to students over the age of 18.

The academic year begins with a two-week adaptation-orientation course. It is an intensive Czech language course accompanied by an introduction into Czech culture and history, basic orientation in the study centre, the Institute of Language and Preparatory Studies (ILPS) and the general area. Classes in specialized subjects start from the third week. These classes revise and supplement students' high-school knowledge, prepare students specifically for the questions and tasks of the entrance exams and for the start of their university studies. Instructors combine theoretical instruction with practical assignments and practice.

Students take regular tests to monitor their progress in both Czech and the specialized subjects. In the Czech language, each semester ends with a language exam. The winter semester ends with an exam targeted at level B1 of the CEFR, the summer semester with a final exam targeted at level B2 of the CEFR. Upon successfully passing the final exam, students receive a certificate. Students take semester exams in the specialized subjects at the end of each semester.

The tuition consists of seminars, lectures and complex assignments supported by the possibility of regular individual consultations with the teachers. Studying at ILPS CU aims at preparing students for the methods of work necessary for university studies (independence, responsibility, time management).

The FLEXI programme also includes:
basic teaching materials
Russian and English speaking study advisors
registration with the police upon arrival
assistance with choosing adequate specialized subjects
assistance with the recognition (nostrification) of high school / university diplomas
assistance with selecting a university and filling in the application form
help and support in dealing with everyday life situations

The course is suitable for students interested in Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes.
